BRACKET CHANGER: Syracuse's Melo ineligible to play in NCAA tournament


CFab Melo did not travel with the Orange to Pittsburgh and will not play in the NCAA Tournament due to an eligibility issue, according to Syracuse University. Because of the school's policy and federal student privacy laws, no further details can be provided at this time. Melo missed three games earlier this year because of academic issues. He averaged 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds this season.

I recommend everyone go back and adjust their brackets accordingly. My advice? There's no way Syracuse gets past Ohio State without Melo, and I had those two meeting up down the bracket. Sucks for Syracuse fans or anyone that had them making a deep run.
